Our wound treatment services

Please note if you need emergency care for a wound, you may come to our hospital's 24/7 emergency room (ER) for treatment. Our wound care services include a range of specialized treatments, including:

Burn care

Burn care is a specialized area of wound care that requires expert treatment and continued care. Our hospital is one of only six burn care centers in the state of Florida, meaning you can receive specialized, continuing care close to home as your burn heals.

Burn services are offered in both inpatient and outpatient settings. The type of burn care you receive will depend on the type of burn you have.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

This treatment takes place in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, where a patient breathes pure oxygen in a pressurized room for a specified amount of time.

The increased level of oxygen in the body facilitates the healing process and has proven to be a successful treatment option for wound healing. In addition to these benefits, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is helpful in fighting some types of infections.

We have two hyperbaric oxygen chambers at our hospital. Each chamber features a spacious interior and is designed for patient ease and comfort during treatment. During treatment, you have the option of resting in a reclined or angled position.
